The recent PainSA conference held in conjunction with the International Association of the study of Pain, Africa Association for the study of Pain, NeuroPsig and the London Pain Consortium, presented current physiological evidence of the importance of neuronal and synaptic activities involved in generating pain. The physiological evidence supports the inclusion of medication previously considered as co-analgesics or adjuvant analgesics as primary analgesics. This article looks at the assessment and management of pain in the palliative care setting and the current recommendations for the management of neuropathic pain.
